The 41-year-old will also recall on-loan West Ham winger Victor Moses as well as Watford striker Odion Ighalo to his team, according to reports.

It seems the coach has been impressed by their showing at club since the start of season and is looking to strengthen his team ahead of the two internationals.

Monaco’s Elderson Echiejile will also get a look in but captain and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama is not likely to be recalled.

Four players from the domestic league will make the trip to be part of the friendly, the report also stated.
